Hi, everyone,

An Asian student at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut, has written 
an article calling for America's metrication. It’s in the Wesleyan Argus (the 
University’s student newspaper,) here. 
<http://wesleyanargus.com/2018/02/08/going-metric-a-long-overdue-system-of-simplicity-and-perfection/>

The article quotes some of the international students and their difficulties 
with USC measurements, and one American student supporting USC. 

The closing paragraph is an excellent summary:

It’s a small change in day-to-day life, but it is an important one. Given the 
greater interconnectedness of the world and the standards on which technology 
and industry operate, it is a foregone conclusion that America will eventually 
switch to the metric system. The question, now, is when.

 The article has been posted to Reddit and comments will be here.

I hope you can show him some support.

Best wishes,

Peter Goodyear,
